Latter-day Saints Church Col­lege sprinter Sereana Vulaono is confident of winning gold in the junior girls 100m event at the Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Asso­ciation national finals today.

The three-day athletics meet, other­wise known as the Coca-Cola Games, starts today.

As much as 2605 athletes from across 154 schools are expected to participate.

Vulaono settled for silver in last year’s sub-junior 100m event and be­gan training for this race in term two last year.

She expects tough competition from Jasper WIlliams High School, Saint Joseph Secondary School and Adi Cakobau School.

“My times have been improving in the past few weeks and I’ve been training really hard for this race,” Vulaono said.

“Competing in front of a large and noisy crowd will certainly be a chal­lenge but I experienced it last year so I’m ready for that.”

Meanwhile, Ratu Kadavulevu School and Adi Cakobau School will be defending the girls and boys titles respectively.
